Empire Of The Sun is the collaboration of Luke Steele (The Sleepy Jackson) and Nick Littlemore (Pnau). The electronic music duo formed in Sydney, Australia in 2008.
The two have released three studio albums; the award-winning 2008 release Walking On A Dream, 2013’s arrival Ice On The Dune, and the most-recent 2016 effort Two Vines. In my opinion, the track “High and Low” was one of the best tunes from last year. 2016 was a busy year for the duo, in addition to releasing their third album, Steele and Littlemore took a job with Honda to help boost Civic sales.
The glam rockers have been compared to MGMT early in their career, however they cite Phoenix and Daft Punk as their inspiration.
I hope to debut some of my new flamboyant headdress for the occasion. I’ll include that on the “What To Bring” so you don’t forget yours.
2017 marks the act’s third appearance Coachella Festival, they also hit the stage back in 2014 and 2011.
